Derbyshire have recorded a profit for the sixth time in seven years following their promotion to Division One.
The club announced a surplus of £23,310 for 2012, despite key fixtures such as the Twenty20 game with Nottinghamshire being decimated by rain.
Chairman Chris Grant said: "Posting a profit for the second successive year is an excellent achievement.
"We are embarking upon an exciting period both on and off the field with no debt and a sound financial footing."
Grant added: "Success on the field is our ultimate priority but that is dependent on continued success, growth and ambition behind the scenes."
